JC on being a CBT
Q: How did you find out about Envizion?
After a while since I graduated college, one of my batch mates encouraged me to apply in Envizion. There were three of us who tried but only I continued and pursued the job.
Q: What do you enjoy most about working at Envizion?
Being in a comfortable company of people makes me enjoy work, even though it gets demanding sometimes. It’s always fun to work with people who get me and vibe with me well.
Q: What is the most rewarding thing about your job; what makes it all worthwhile?
Hearing my students’ success in English Proficiency exams, personal experiences when communicating fluently with foreigners, or just merely appreciating my work make everything rewarding.
Q: How do you provide More Than Tsada lessons to your students?
I think the key is to have fun with your students. When you’re having fun, you’re learning something. It could be something trivial or profound, but the important thing is there is learning.

Q: What’s one big difference you noticed about your teaching style while growing as a CBT?
Nothing big has changed but after more than two years of teaching, I have been doing discussion style. It promotes learning through interaction and encourages critical thinking and lively exchange of ideas.
Q: What do you focus on the most during your lessons?
When I have my lessons, I ask my students what they want to achieve at the end of our lesson, and that’s what I focus on. I ensure that my students can gain something new and good every time. It is very fulfilling.
Q: What advice do you have for someone who is just starting out in the company?
It takes time to get the hang of the responsibilities at work, but always have a positive outlook, enjoy every moment, and don’t be afraid.
JC on life
Q: If you weren’t a CBT, what job would you have now?
I think I would pursue a job in line with my college degree in Psychology. I’ve always wanted to be working for people who made me realize a lot and changed my perception about life. Because of that, I want to extend to them the help as they have given me.
Q: How do you keep a healthy work/life balance?
I make sure that I get to spoil and treat myself after a tough week. It’s important for me to do things that make me happy. If I am happy, it emanates to my work. So it’s a win-win deal.
Q: What are your hobbies?
I’ve always enjoyed cooking and baking but nowadays, I am fond of watching movies and random YouTube videos. I just savor every minute I can rest. But when the wanderer in me is awakened, I love traveling with my closest friends elsewhere.
Always have a positive outlook, enjoy every moment, and don’t be afraid.
Q: Who/what are your inspirations?
My family has always been my source of inspiration and my core. My parents, most especially, taught me to never give up, despite what life throws at me. I owe my life to them, and so now is the time to give them what they deserve. That’s why I do and give my best even without knowing what comes next.
Q: Do you have any irrational fears?
Murderers waiting on the other side of closed shower curtains. I’m fond of horror or suspense films and maybe it has taken a toll on me. Haha!
Q: Which body part are you most confident about?
My hands. They say so much about me and my personality.
Q: First thing you do when you wake up?
Pray. Everyday, I start my day by feeling grateful for another blessing God has given me – life.
Q: If you had one superpower, what would it be?
Telepathy. I know it would be depressing sometimes, but I think it would be fun to know what other people are thinking.
